Chocolate Mousse

A light, delicious end to a fine dinner, this mousse can be made a day ahead.  Be sure to use a good bitter chocolate, it plays off the sweetness of the other ingredients nicely.


Chocolate Mousse


8 Oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate

2 Tbsp. Unsalted butter

3 Large Egg yolks

2 Large Eggs

2/3 Cup Sugar

3 Tbsp. Rum

1 tsp. Vanilla

1 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream


Melt chocolate with butter.  Combine yolks, eggs, sugar, rum and vanilla and whisk over a double boiler until temperature reaches 160 degrees.  Remove from the heat and whisk until cool.  Whip cream to soft peaks.  Fold the egg mixture into the chocolate, then fold the cream into all. Place in serving dishes and allow to set for several hours.
